Hiring & Training
Dura Vermeer committed to hiring and finding employment for at least 45 refugees over the next three years with permanent positions in the construction industry in the Netherlands. Refugees who graduate from the two-year construction program at the Hogeschool of Rotterdam will be guaranteed a high-level technical position in the construction industry in the Netherlands either at Dura Vermeer or at companies in its partner network. Dura Vermeer will also support Stichting Nieuw Thuis Rotterdam to help prepare refugees for entrance into the labour market, by offering internships at Dura Vermeer and opening up their network. In addition, Dura Vermeer will encourage its suppliers to do more to support refugees and is helping to change the narrative around hiring refugees in the Netherlands.
